What the fuck?
What has been with the recent influx of objectively decent material in the audio portal? I always counted being a haven of shit, but this is good. Neat little two-chord progression? Porn groove drums? Little synth flute flourishes? Pleasant ambient washes? A bass line with a non-conventional rhythm? This shit's gonna make me spoiled,
A lot of it is a shit haven full of poorly produced Bass Hunter rip-off songs and songs lacking originality and production value. I'm glad someone else appreciates quality music. Thanks for the review, it really gives me assurance that there are more people in the audio portal that have expanded music taste outside of techno/trance and mainstream radio. I'm actually pretty glad I'm getting mixed reviews because 90% of the songs that get all 10's suck balls in my book so I must be doing something right.
I love it!
It's not fair, I automatically enjoy anything with pinch harmonic interludes. The beginning kind sound like a slowed down 'Fight Fire with Fire,' but meh, so does basically all thrash metal.
Clint Mansell Much?
You ever seen Requiem for a Dream? Shitty movie, famous soundtrack. It sounds fairly close to what you've done here. If you can get a guy with a facile political message to rap over this, you'll sell a million copies.
i've never seen Requiem for a Dream.
and theres plenty of guys with a political message but im not sure they have the flow to fit it
Immortal Technique and Dead Prez comes to mind when it comes to politacl rappers
but in this beat ive broken about every law in terms of a rap beat
its only 2 verses and yet 5 minutes long
but if some one plans to rap with out a chourus or hook
[Some one like Nimbus The General, another rapper here on newgrounds]
then it can work.
If you know your hip hop music
perfecting a flow for this beat can incopasitate you
becouse i left no room to breathe in it
so it will require an Exellent amount of talent for somthing as difficult as this
if i was a begginer MC
i would never choose this beat
[Great Beats + Wack rapper = Disaster]
I belive this song alone proves that Rappers have more talent than singers
singers can just Blow a song right over it with no problem
but a rapper must hit every single syllabol to match the flow of this
i doubt any one in the entire hip hop industry can do it
[Maybe Big L, But he is dead]
This is worse than that Across the Universe movie. Tell me, what exactly did you think you were adding to an already subpar Beatles song by incorporating nasal Fallout Boy vocals and goddamn screamo? This is worse than Brokencyde. At least they have the courtesy to write their own crappy material.
Also, John Lennon hated this song because he thought it was slight, pointless McCartney bullshit, which it was.
Here are some tips to give your cover version a sembleance of adequacy:
-You have a good thing going with the vocal harmonies. Try and make them more apparent in the production.
-Get your drummer to take some speed because he's kind of sloppy, but I guess that's what you're going for when you're the punkest sonofabitch in the room.
-This stuff appeals readily to the lowest common denominator, so you should use all the money you'll receive from kids with stupid hair to invest in a wind guard.
-Take off that checkered fedora. You look like a moron.
Ahh finally the review I've been waiting for XD
Super Generic Power Metal!
This song don't have much character, but that's okay 'cause you obviously have the technical ability to progress in your songwriting.
You got your:
-Neat little Aeolian riff that sounds like any number of other neat Aeolian riffs.
-Excellent drum production! Stick with that shit.
-Unmotivating chord progression.
-Super generic metal title. You should at least consider something somewhat original like, ho, I don't know, "I Killed My Baby When I Accidentally Slammed a Printing Press on her Clitoris." Just a suggestion.
- Inevitably, this reminds me of the music in the f-zero games, so I can't possibly stay mad at it.
-Needs more balls out shredding.
Funniest shit I've ever heard.
This beats that Lady Arsenic song as the most unintentionally hilarious thing on NG.
Good 8-bit music.
I have to say, I infinitely prefer your 8-bit music over the rest of your output. It always seemed to histrionic for my tastes, but when you remove some of the more overwrought sounds, I can see you have a true talent for melodic development. It's catchy as well.
Technically accomplished, but...
Well, you do what you do very well and I can certainly appreciate your effort, but none of your stuff sounds like punk music to me. What are your influences? The only thing I can remotely relate this to is NOFX.
When I think of punk, it's usually louder, sloppier, and faster with lyrics or general musical content intended to express dissatisfaction with the status quo.
Richard Hell and the Voidoids
Of course, they're all from the 70's and 80's. Maybe I should just get with the times.
I stopped worrying about the definitions of music genre a long time ago, I do what I do and that's it, if you can't see the punk rock in songs like Sweet Agony, Asshole, Merry Fuckmas, The weight of time, etc then you are a bit too stuck in the 70s :) My inspirations are more like Bad religion, Nofx, pennywise, bigwig, etc...you know...90s punk rock...what you could call skate punk I guess.
I admit this song is not "punk rock" that much though.
As I make music for games and movies, I don't include lyrics so maybe you'll never feel the punk rock in my music. As for what "punk rock" actually is, In my opinion it's much broader than your definition. Your definition is a subset of a grander mentality that I think defines the punk rock way of life in this modern age. But I'm sure we can stand on common grounds there and just enjoy the music we enjoy. Thanks for the review dude.
This doesn't really work.
You're one of the very, very, very, very few composers on Newgrounds who manages to make decent electronic music. I understand why you would want to remix an awesome song like "Intergalactic," but unfortunately your respective idioms are too disparate to really be combined in any significant way. This is way too bombastic for Hello Nasty era Beastie Boys. This might've worked has you remixed a song from License to Ill.
Good song, but it ain't Jazz.
Somehow in your attempt to write a Jazz song you've written a New Wavey Police song, except with less interesting drums, but Sting's not singing, so that basically makes it the best song ever.
